How many times have you thought of someone from your youth and wish you could change things that happened?


Saying I’m Sorry
Is there someone from your past that brings sadness to your heart?
When you remember something you did, that tore you both apart.
If you have, you’re not alone for we all have sadness from our youth.
The things we did, the things we said were sometimes uncouth.
But it’s never too late to say I’m sorry if we hurt someone, sometime.
We can try to find them, let them know our sadness for being so unkind.
Some say you can never repair a relationship that has gone astray.
But I believe you can with honesty and love, and in a loving way.
If you’re truly sorry for what you did, it will come bursting through.
Driving all their doubts & misgivings away, and they will believe in you.
Sorry is not a hard word, but so many of us find it’s difficult to say.
If you mean it when you say it, it can change your life, in a very loving way.
Written by,
Bonnie May

the crudeness and insensitivity we employ in our adolescence sometimes leave scars that endure for a lifetime -- oh mouth of ignorance, loose not a tongue that wags your emotions -- peace to you Bonnie -- JMW

Words are well as hurtful. Choose them wisely
To say I am sorry and mean it, can heal each person involved.

Sibling rivalry can be intense, and a look at nature's plan with all us chicks fighting in the nest for food from mama's beak, it's not hard to see why.

You're right, Bonnie, if there's a chance to repair any old grievances or hurts, a person should try their best to amend
and apologize to anyone in their past who they've knowingly
treated badly.

I love this poem. There are so many people that hate to admit that they have done something wrong and even more that never say that they are sorry.

This was a beautiful, caring and loving write! My Mama never would say that she was sorry about anything, she reasoned that if she could relive the event, she would do it the same way, so there was no reason to say, " I'm Sorry". LOVE! SC

This is something that not only those of us who have moved on thru our years should read....but... for those who are young as stop the pain that is inflicted; innocent or not...and to perhaps...reinvent their path ... saying I'm sorry is not easy...but if we can tell it to ourselves over and over...we should be able to say it to someone it matters! Always great writing...lindalaw

I think we all have made mistakes or wronged someone in our lifetimes and if we can have the opportunity to say we are sorry it is a lovely thing but if not knowint in our hearts that we are truly sorry is the next best thing.

IT opens SPACE for GOOD to come in and

Love this poem Bonnie!
Makes me think and I like that, as I say my forgiveness while pondering!
Thank you (more so) for this Opportunity!
I do realize it does take TWO, for the growth to be strong, but to forgive on your side ONLY, can establish a route in the Universe and give your heart SPACE to grow!
Much love and WARMEST Hugs, Warrior PURPLE Lady SHEExooo

Bonnie, you are a treasure. The only sorry I'd like to say

This hit home to me today...but sadly, sometimes...even I'm sorry isn't enough. And the friend that I long to renew ties with will not listen to me repeated pleas of sorrow. We shared so many wonderful times... I believe that in order to forgive, there must (at least in this case) be the willingness for both parties to accept their responsibility for a friendship falling apart. And...ultimately, there must be a willingness to forgive and forget.
